CTYPECAST Cast FreeMat Structure to C Structure

Section: FreeMat External Interface


The ctypecast function is a convenience function for ensuring that a FreeMat structure fits the definition of a C struct (as defined via ctypedefine. It does so by encoding the structure to a byte array using ctypefreeze and then recovering it using the ctypethaw function. The usage is simply
   s = ctypecast(s,typename)

where s is the structure and typename is the name of the C structure that describes the desired layout and types for elements of s. This function is equivalent to calling ctypefreeze and ctypethaw in succession on a FreeMat structure.
